THE opening of new computer labs will increase access by students to the Information Communication Technology (ICT) service says Dr. Glynn Galo Vice Chancellor Solomon Islands National University (SINU).
In his opening remarks to mark the opening of the SINU new computer labs yesterday, Dr. Galo said there is a relationship between the quality of teaching, learning resources and the quality of graduates’ institution such as SINU produce.
He said, central to this is the provision of quality infrastructure, equipment, and learning resources such as library resources and internet access to both staff and students.
In recognizing this, SINU since its establishment as an university in 2013 has been embarking on provision of the much needed resources with development budget funds from Solomon Islands Government, as part of its transition from SICHE to SINU, he said.
“The facilities that we now witness its opening today (yesterday) are an example of such initiative and we are so grateful to the Solomon Islands Government for funding the assistance”.
The facilities consist of 120 desktop computers where 67 of them have been installed in the main computer lab while the remaining has been distributed to smaller labs.
